THE F R ANCES SHIMER SCHOOL 

Situation 

Mt. Carroll, a town of 2,000 people, situated in northwestern Illinois, 
ten miles from the Mississippi River, is attractively located among picturesque 
hills The neighborhood is justly celebrated for its beauty and healthfulness. 
It is the county seat of Carroll County, and is exclusively a place of residence. 
The absence of mines, factories, or great industrial enterprises makes the com- 
munity an ideal one for an educational institution. 

Mt. Carroll is on the Omaha Division of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. 
Paul Railway. 12S miles west of Chicago. It is accessible also by automobile 
route over the Indian Head TraU from the Lincoln Highway at Sterling. 

Attn 

The School is not an experiment; it is now educating the third generation 
of young women. The work of the School is accredited by the North Central 
Association of Colleges and Secondary SchooU, which means that its academic 
Kraduatcs are admitted without examination to all colleges and universities 
which admit on certification. The academic course of study is also compre- 
hensive and thorough enough to meet the needs of those prepcinng for the 
examinations of the CoUege Entrance Board. The graduates of the Junior 
CoUcge arc admitted to the Junior year of leading mid-western and western 
colleges and universities without examinations. 

The purpose of the School, however, is to train its students for life rather 
than for any particular college or vocation. It seeks to develop strong minds 
in strong bodies, to give a background of knowledge, to create tastes and 
standards of value, to iostU principles of conduct that arc worthy and Christian, 
and to inspire, through instruction and training, ideals that are democratic 
and altruistic, to the end that its students may realize their obligation to make 
some individual contribution to the common welfare. 

History 

The School, founded in 1853. and known for forty-three years as Mt. 
CarroU Seminary, was transferred in 1896. by the wish of the founder, Mrs. 
F A W. Shimcr, to a Board of Trustees of fifteen members, represenUng 
the University of Chicago, the alumnae of the Seminary, and the citizens of 

Ml. Carroll. „ ,. ^ . • »i a^a 

The hundreds of graduates and pupils of Mt. CarroU Seminaiy are mduded 
as graduates and pupils of the School, and the large constituency, with traditions 
of culture and Christian service gamed in more than seventy years, furnishes a 
constant source of support.

'07. The School is also indcbte<i to Scmitor William McKinley for a gift of 
$S,ooo for this building. It b named in honor of Mr and Mrs. Robert CampbcUp 
long friends of the School It is a two-story*and-basemcnt building of the 
Colonial style of architecture, 72X30 feet, solidly constructc<l of brick, con- 
cretCy and steel 

The School had the benefit of much expert advice in planning the arrange- 
ment and equipment of the building, designed by C. A. Eckstorm, Chicago, 
and every care was taken to make it adequate for the purr>ose. It is finished in 
red oak, with rubber tile floors insuring the desired quiet. The equipment was 
furnished by the Library Bureau. The basement contains shelves for storage. 
The reading room occupies the entire first floor. Here the present library of 
almost 6,000 volumes is housed. The southwest c<»rner of the room is ri^crved 
for the Ilazzen Memorial Collection. This gift of over 1,000 volumes was made 
by Mrs. Isabel Dearborn Hazizen from the library of her husband, the kt« 
Henry* Wilmarth llaazen, long a teacher in tlie School Another valoable ad- 
dition of books received during the year was the coUcction given by Mrs,

HE FRANC ES SHIMER SCHOOL 






Winona Branch Sawyer, '71, oi Lincoln, Nebraska. The upper floor of the 
Library will be resented for an art gaUery which the School is seeking to develop. 

Winona Branch Sawyer House 

During the summer of 1926 this buUding, the gift of Mrs. Winona Branch 
Si.v.ycT, Class of '71, will be erected. It will serve as a residence for the head of 

the School. 

Churcaes 

Rfcmbere of the School go to the Baptist or Methodist churches. The 
Methodist church is large and commodious, equipped with pipe organ and 
Sunday-school room in addition to the auditorium. The Baptist church 
erected in 1913 a Sunday-school building as an addition to its equipment and 
enlarged its audience room and organ and installed a steam-heating plant. 

Social Life •<•- 

The private boarding-school has an opportunity that docs not come to the 
pubUc institution-it commands and is likewise responsible for aU the students' 
time Under these circumstances the extra-curricular actmlics become second 1 

onIv"in importance to the program of the curriculum. Social education is part y 

of coUege training. The activities of the various student organizations not only J 

supply adequate diversion, but give valuable training in social co-opcration and 
in the worthy use of leisure. The social atmosphere of the School is whole- 
somely democratic. Every girl is expected to use and develop for the general 
benefit whatever social gifts she may possess. Appropriate dress, a pleasmg 
manner poise, gradousncss, entertaining conversation, ability to appear at 
ease before an audience, arc as much a part of the School ideal as are scholastic 
attainments. With the assistance of class counselors the students give chss 
parties lunches, dances, bazaars, teas, lawn ffites, conccrU, and plays; they 
plan menus, arrange decorations, devise costumes and stage propcrti^^. Occ^- 
sionaUy they write their own pla>-s. A Victrola with many valuab e records 
aids in the cultivation of an appreciation of the best in music. A motion- 
picture machine is used both for entertainment and instruction. A sencs of the 
better films selected by a committee in charge is presented durmg the year. 

The location of the School is exceptionally favorable for the cultivation of 
interest in out-of-door life and sports. Golf, tennis, hockey, basket-baU, 
captain-baU, coasting, cTOSS-countr>' walks, and picnicking are a part of the 
daUy life, contributing to appetite and sound sleep, and laying the foundations 
for physical health and mental poise.

Endowment 

At her deceaw, November lo, .901, Mn. F. A. W. Shimer hit the bulk of 
her pn>iK..rty ,n trust for the )>e«eat of ihe School. The property consists 
money an. real estate, ch.efly in UUnois, Iowa, Nebraska, and Florida. 

In addition to this. Mm Adelia C. Joy. for twenty yca« Udy Principal of 
Mt. Carroll Seminary, who died in October. ,903, in Davenport. Iowa, left 
bequests to the School and to the ICduoitional Aid AwociaHon. The latter b 
for the benefit of pupils in the Sldiool who arc worthy and who need fmanciaJ 
belp.

The Junior College 

Why a Junm CclUgil 

In the reorganisation of the American ichool system there b a tendency to 
redistribute the work of the high school and the colJegc, and to include in the 
period of secondary education the first two years of college work, The new in- 
Btitutioa, the Junior College^ is today doing an inacaaing proportion of the 
work of the College Freshman and Sophomore years. 

Some students wbb to continue their education l>eyond the high school, 
but do not desire the more extended tyi>c offered by the four*year college* 
For these students the Junior College, furnishing a practical and thorough 
training, serves as a completion school 

The tremendous growth ol the large universities, resulting at times in 
overcrowding, frequently renders it advantageous to the student to do the 
work of the Freshman and Sophomore years in a smaller institutioei. 

The private Junior College combines a safe, comfortable, attractive home 
life and close association of students and faculty with the high quality and 
standards of instruction given in the large institutions. 

The two years of the Junior College ser\'e as a transition from home into 
the larger and more complex life of the university. During this period stu- 
dents under guidance grow in knowledge^ self-reliance^ aiid in sotmdnesa of 
judgment, and are thus prepared to meet the exadiiig work aod the deeper 
problems presented by the larger world of the great univenitics.

The film] grade is the average of the term grade and the examlxiatkm 
grade. 

The passing grade is 60. Hiose who receive an average above 60, the 
examination grade being below 50; also those who receive an average below 
60, the examination grade being above 50, must take another craminitkiii

Advantages of House R€sidenc€.--SiudmiB from out of town are required in 
all cases, unless residing with near relatives (as near as uncle), to occupy rooms 
in the school UuUdinp. Students occupying such rooms avoid mmy distrac^ 
tions, come into very close contact with the life of the School, and are more 
likely to regard the school work as the one thing demanding their best efforts 
'llcy are led to cultivate a healthy spirit of self reliance, and to gain from their 
fcUow^studcnts an enthusiasm for study and knirn bow to live with people. Not 
infreciuenlly the k^t and most lasting results of school life are derived from iti 
associations. Rules for house pupils are furnished on entrance. In general, 
they provide for the order and behavior of the pupils as would be expected in a 
gootl homo. Aaulcmic pupila arc free within the grounds in recreation hours. 
When outside the grounds, they are under the oversight of teachers, zs when 
they visit dentists, dressmakers, and stores, NamcH of roommates cannot 
be given in advance. 

College Girls,— Iht occupants of CoUcgc and William Parker McKee Halli 
enjoy student government under a constitution adopted by themselves and 
approved by the Faodty. 

Roanis ami f wr nMmgj,~Roorns are of different kinds and sij&es. Several 
rooms in West 11 ail are single and two in West have space for ihtet each. For 
extra charge for one pupil in a room, see p. 42, All rooms arc furnished with 
single beds, 6'X6' 3", chairs, table, bureau, wadistand, and window shades, 
(Windows 6 X 4, as a rule. Dresser tops 38X19. Cc«nmodes 33X18.) Stu- 
dents furnish rugs (if desired), lAred skeeis, thrte piU<m cases 20X 26, all bed chth^ 
ing, six towels (three bath, three ptmn)J&ur napkins, and napkin ring, knife Jork,

while middies, bUuk tie and knnis shoa, flannel nigki robes, one pair storm rtMers, 
hoi-water bottle, mnbreiia, heapy walking shoes. They should also bring diction- 
ary and Bible- 

Dress.— The School does not dictate definite rules of dress, since dfcis is 
expressive of intiividuaUty. It is suggested, however, that in the selection of 
clotliing two standards be observed: suitability and simplidty. For school 
wear, one piece dresses of material suited to the season have bees found satis- 
factory. The conventional dinner dress has no place in the school wardrobe, 
although pupils do not wear their school dresses to dinner- One or two simple 
evening dresses for wear at the school parlies are essential. MinineT>- h not 
an important problem. A simple tailored hat of becoming shape is all that is 
required. The same rule of simplicity and suitability appliei to shoes. High 
h^U are out of place on the campus except for cvemng. For cvcr>'day and 
walking, plain well-made sport oxfords with low or medium hcd arc fxst.
